Advances in Prenatal Molecular Diagnostics

Date: 05-Nov-14 to 07-Nov-14
The field of prenatal diagnostics is undergoing rapid and significant change, as a variety of molecular diagnostics are transforming the type and quality of data that can be provided to pregnant women and their physicians. Array-based cytogenetic analysis can provide more detailed and accurate assessment of many genetic conditions compared with traditional karyotyping, both of which rely on samples obtained using invasive procedures. Since obtaining samples invasively, even in the most proficient hands, does involve some risk to the fetus, there has been tremendous interest in non-invasive testing approaches. Next-gen sequencing of cell-free DNA found in maternal blood has been demonstrated to provide highly accurate assessment of fetal aneuploidies, with quite low false positives and ...
